HOW THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE UNDERMINED SLAVERY AND ENABLED CIVIL RIGHTS (AND CAN HEAL US TODAY) [EPISODE 178]
In this episode I want to talk about what happened on the 4th of July—why it matters. It is not an irrelevant event or a holiday of the oppressor, but the key event that undermined the evils of slavery. It enabled the civil rights movement (MLK drew upon it for authority), and if we apply it, it can help us fix what ails us today.
Leadership, according to Marshal Goldsmith is “Providing inspiration and vision, then developing and empowering other to achieve this vision.” I am grateful that the founding fathers had the wisdom and insight to lead us to a better future.
If you subscribe to the arguments of the 1619 Project and the dubious theory that the world consists only of oppressors and the oppressed, you will not like this episode. If you are intellectually honest, you might want to hear the arguments from the other side. Check out the 1776 project: https://1776unites.com/
